What you remembered about Mrs. Green was just how forgettable she was. Average height. Nondescript face. Boring drab clothes. No one looked at her twice and that was a mistake.

Do not read a book by its cover. Mrs. Green looked like a commonplace housewife. Actually, her forgettable characteristics oddly gave her the edge. So one year in her olive green indescribable coat, she could be a government spy. The next year, she could be a covert diamond thief. And the next, a leader for operations in exotic countries. 

Presently, the mysterious Mrs. Green would just play at being boring.

Ooooo, Agatha Christie! My favorite and obviously she has had a great impact on your writing style.

I immediately thought of Mr. Brown in Partners in Crime. No one could quite describe him, but he was everywhere. Agatha Christie is such a great mentor for all of us!

Loved this story and…would love to hear more about Mrs. Green’s adventures. I think you have the beginnings of a longer tale here!

Why do my friends need to SignIn to read the post I shared?

Actually, this is a voting security feature. During public voting, only club members can read posts submitted for that contest. Since anyone reading the story is able to vote (click the Like button), we reserve these capabilities to members who SignIn. Before we implemented this security feature, people were voting multiple times and making the public voting process unfair and out of balance. To fix this, our staff finally decided to allow only members who SignIn to read the stories. Membership is free and easy, and ensures our club is safe, secure, and family-friendly!
